Et Voila! It is now October and I’m not quite sure how the past 30 days have so briskly flown by in all their September flurry…We now awake to a brisk bite in the air, and lose the day light a wee bit sooner than we’d prefer…But all the more excuse to stay cozy & tucked up in the kitchen, experimenting with recipes and enjoying the fall flavored results straight out of the oven…Time to dig out the knits and heavy sweaters, put the kettle on, and sort through those recipes you stowed during Spring & Summer.

Just finished these little wrist warmers from a pattern my sister lent me. The yummy, hand-died yarn comes all the way from Mommy in Florida...

These 'Almond Macaroons' are a favorite German treat, made with Marzipan & slivered Nuts

Fresh fall apples picked from a dear friend's tree...a delightful housewarming gift that will certainly keep on giving :)


“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace As I have seen in one autumnal face. ”

Here’s to the arrival of pumpkins, mulled spices, squash & early sunsets…~p.e.
